Alastair and Simon joined us here at Thornbank Cottage last night. Today we cycled about 6 miles up Glen Ey. I cycled back down as the weather looked bleak. The others climbed Beinn Iutharn Moor.
Back in Braemar after an enjoyable bike ride, I went for a short (6 km) stroll up nearby Creag Choinnich. There was a fine view down to Braemar from the summit.
My route took me to the Lion's Face, which I assume is the slab of rock pictured below.
Then we reconvened at Thornbank in expectation of a good meal at Farquesons before Simon goes home.
(Brief entries just now - no WiFi, poor phone signal, etc. I'll edit and add more photos when back at home.)
